Organic Craspedia

With unlikely charm, Craspedia is celebrated by both Dr. Seuss and Martha Stewart. She goes by many marvelous names, from drumstick flower to billy balls to sun ball. Easy to grow, Craspedia sends up a bustling skyline of inch-wide golden blossoms on long 20+ inch silver stems perfect for both fresh and dry arrangements. Her understory of silver-green foliage is an ornamental tuft unto itself. Craspedia makes very few demands, thriving in poor soil and even in drought. At Fruition, we sow Craspedia in soil blocks 4 weeks before final frost to transplant after final frost with 1 foot between plants.
